Navigating Holocaust Resources Online @ Attend in person or register for online webinar | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

In her presentation, genealogist Kaye Prince-Hollenberg will show us the various resources available online for tracing Holocaust victims, survivors, and displaced persons. Learn how to navigate and piece together the records available from a myriad of sources including Yad Vashem, the JDC, the Arolsen Archives, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and smaller, regional repositories. We will also look at databases that include records related to concentration camps, and ongoing efforts to document victims in towns and cities.

Speaker: Kaye Prince-Hollenberg is a professional genealogist based in Hamilton, Ontario. She specializes in Jewish Genealogy, Holocaust Research, and Genetic Genealogy. A librarian by day, Kaye can often be found hosting genealogy workshops, helping others with their research, and acting as a Search Angel for Canadian adoptees. She is the JRI-Poland town leader for Korolowka and Zaleszczyki, and is currently working on a multi-year project to trace and document Jewish families and Holocaust survivors from the town of Korolowka.

Have You Considered Big Y DNA Testing?
Linda Reid will present some (mostly) light-hearted suggestions of why you might consider Big Y DNA testing for some of your family lines.

Speaker: Linda Reid has been a genealogist for forty years. Genetic genealogy rekindled her enthusiasm, first autosomal DNA and more recently Big Y. Linda was the recipient of the 2022 Hall of Fame Award in recognition of her many years of volunteer service to Toronto Branch. She has served in numerous capacities including as Toronto Branch Chair, Program Coordinator, Facilitator of the Advanced Genetic Genealogy SIG, and Facilitator of the Scottish SIG. She has also served as a volunteer in the Toronto Family History Centre.

If the weather cooperates, this will be a hybrid meeting. You are welcome to join us in person at Lansing United Church. Masks are encouraged. (We’ll know you are smiling.)
